Tolerance? or Ignorance?


CTV seems to lack historical reference at times, or is being overly tolerant. Over the past few weeks I have noticed that one of the people that comments, and has not been moderated is a person that has taken on the moniker of Nathan Forest. I seriously suspect that Mr Forest has taken this name for a reason, as his comments walk the edge of intolerance at times, but at other times seem tolerant.

My question is why would anyone take on this name? Or at least if it was a real name why not change it? Historically Nathan Bedford Forrest was a crude man who had made his fortune as a slave trader, and was noted for his violence. During the American civil war he was accused of leading Confederate soldiers in a massacre of unarmed black Union Army prisoners,After the war Forrest opposed Reconstruction policies and federal occupation by serving as the first Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan.

One might wonder what CTV would do if someone commented under the name of Adolf Hitler?
